FX-8350 ,Biostar ta970 ,MSI N660 Overclocking

I have bin wanting to get into overclocking for a long time now i think i have good enough components to do it but i have some questions first.

1: I have bin watching videos fro the past week on OC the FX-8350 and the one thing that i think might be a problem is i dont have a high end gaming motherboard like a asus sabertooth or anything like that. i just have a Biostar ta970 and i have no clue if that has any kind of effect on it because when i go into my bios the interface doesn't have all the fancy layout (GEWY) and all the extra features in it like the ones they use in the tutorials. so if someone could help me out on that it would be greatly appreciated

2: my next question is will i have limitations by not having a fancy gaming motherboard. will i not be able to overclock as high. Do i have to do something special to it to be able to do overclocking

3: my last question is actually about my gpu OC. I have a MSI GTX N660 and it came with afterburner and i was just wondering if anybody had a max setting they got theirs too.

Thanks for the help

    If it's TA970 then I wouldn't try overclocking on it.The TA970 is a poor quality board with a 4+1 power phase design.
